Integrated Vice President, Finance and Information Services/Chief Financial Officer
St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph (SJHCG) is a leader in providing outstanding healthcare and support to clients (residents, patients, participants), families, and the broader community. SJHCG provides a continuum of integrated services that provide innovative and integrated solutions for older adults and caregivers. SJHCG’s campus of care includes: long-term care, post acute care (rehabilitation, complex medical, palliative), transitional care, Seniors affordable housing, Adult Day Programs, Respite Care, social, recreational and intergenerational programming, seniors outreach (Nurse Led Outreach Team, Community, Retirement and LTC Behavioural Supports Ontario, Specialized Geriatric Services) and social enterprise partnerships (SEED and Guelph Youth Farm).
St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre Brantford (SJLCB) is the largest long-term care home in Brantford & Brant County and one of only two not-for-profit homes in the area. SJLCB offers an ideal environment for socializing, recreation, and friendly interactions. The campus of care offers medical and support services that are specifically designed to make the life of residents more comfortable and enjoyable. SJLCB also includes a 10-bed residential hospice (Stedman Community Hospice) which provides whole person care with a multi-disciplinary team who journey with the patient and their family through their final days. Our Day Programs provide a caring environment where individuals living with a life limiting illness can interact with others experiencing similar challenges and gain support from a dedicated team of staff and volunteers. The palliative Community Outreach Team in partnership with community partners support individuals and families diagnosed with a life limiting disease, dealing with end of life issues or trying to cope with the loss of a loved one.
Guelph and Area was one of the first 12 Ontario Health Teams announced last year with over 33 direct and associate members. Brantford Brant Ontario Health Team was approved in November 2020. Both communities have a successful history along the integration continuum and continue to work broadly with both health and non-health sector partners to support transformation of our local health care system.
